Crystal Palace manager, Roy Hodgson has come out to say that he needs Wilfried Zaha to return from injury very soon. He recently revealed that his boys deserve praise for winning without Zaha, but he still loves to see his best players on the pitch all the time.
According to him, the fact that his team is currently playing without five regular first-team players shows that Crystal Palace should be hailed for any good result they get.
He added that he looks forward to having Tomkins, Sakho, Jeff Schlupp, James McArthur, and Wilf Zaha back with the group.
His words, “That was mentioned in the dressing room [about winning without Zaha], but I must also add – as I have on a few occasions – that it would still be very, very nice to get him back,”
“People should remember we are playing without five regular first-team players. We’ve got two centre-backs [out] in Tomkins and Sakho, midfield players in Jeff Schlupp and James McArthur – and Wilf Zaha.”
“I would defy any team, if you take players of that quality out, to continue playing perhaps at the level they have played to up to that point.”
